Working Saturdays always makes for an odd weekend, but I did get to have dinner with friends on Sunday and hang out for a while. That was a nice addition to the weekend. This week has been a lot of running between jobs and evening plans. Mostly the usual, though tonight was an extra.

Went to the Columbus Idea Foundry to get some help with my computers. Laptop, after taking it apart and examining the power port, we are thinking it may just be a short in the cord. The pin in the port is a tiny bit loose, but it seems like moving the cord does most of the disconnecting. So, next step, try out a new cord at Microcenter when I have time. Desktop got an extra Gig of RAM, and we investigated what it’d take to upgrade the processor. Next step, update the BIOS. It’s SUCH an old machine. But she still runs, so.

I also got to take a look at my new apartment this week, t-minus 1 week to go. There are a few things the property manager put on her list to finish/fix before I move it. All little fiddly bits – a light switch cover, a plug cover, hook up the new gas stove, fix a couple things that got painted shut (assumedly, by the guys they fired) … But, all in all, it looks ready to go. The entry doors/angles are such that I’m glad I’ve got professionals moving the very big things. Looking forward to the new place and the extra space, though looking like I’m going to need/want some area rugs for the floors. It’s always something. ๐Ÿ™‚

Audiobooks: I listened to The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying up byย Marie Kondo, very interesting philosophy and proccess, and Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer, very creepy. Now, I’m onto Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore. Started off iffy, but it’s gotten more interesting.

Storms? What storms? June 13, 2013

I guess the storm came through Columbus last night, my car was wet when I went to work this morning anyway. I didn’t hear anything. Much worse further north. Hope everyone is safe and powered.

Celebrated an engagement with friends this past weekend, I wish them all the best as they plan their lives together. Learned a new game – ladder ball. It was fun, but I’d have to play a lot more to be any good at it. The fire was lovely and warm, though the stone benches remained chilly, which was odd to me, but I guess it takes more heat, or less people blocking them from the fire to warm up.

Got approved for my apartment this week and dropped off the deposit so they’ll hold it for me until I’m ready to move in towards the end of July. A lot of things to do next month for the move.

Father’s Day on Sunday, so Happy Father’s Day to all the dads who read this, and to my Dad, who I think Mom prints this out for him to read.

Lots of friends at Origins this week/end, I think I’m just going to relax, take it easy, and maybe clean my desk.

Nearly There July 14, 2011

The apartment is nearly unpacked. The gaming book is getting closer to print. I’ve almost got the information I need to fix the website. My birthday is just over a week away. I’m on book five of seven. And the possibility of being a librarian that I thought was completely shot, has a dim light reappearing. Things are moving along nicely.

Pictures of the apartment:

The living room.

The back of the living room, note how the bookcases are accessible. ๐Ÿ˜‰
And the desks fill out the wall to the left.

And our library upstairs, soon to have a papasan for more comfortable curling up.

Life is good and another cookout with friends this weekend to boot. ๐Ÿ™‚
